Why JavaScript was developed.

JavaScript is a lightweight programming language. The meaning lightweight is it is easy to understand, easy to code, and easy to execute. Moreover, it runs very faster and smoothly in any machine. Also, it has higher performance as compared to other programming languages.

JavaScript was designed for webpages to interact with users for a better user experience. It was designed only for web domains like you know making HTML and CSS. This makes a web page alive and makes it very interactive with the users. This is the main reason why JavaScript evolved over time.

JavaScript and Java, is there any connection.

The big confusion between JavaScript and Java, people think that they both are the same. But it is not true, though it is derived from Java, the concept of Object-oriented programming in JavaScript is taken from Java. Initially, JS was called a live script and this name was given by a company Netscape. The live script was the initial name of JS because it was mainly used for making webpages alive. So this was a short history of JavaScript.

JavaScript vs Java

JavaScript evolved over time and not it is a fully independent language, it has its own specification like ECMAScript. JS comes among the top 3 programming languages in terms of popularity. Moreover, JavaScript is sub passing Java. With a lot of cool features, I think JS is the best when comparing with Java. It executes faster and also lightweight. For running JS you will need a JavaScript virtual machine. Almost every browser has a JavaScript virtual machine.

Look at the above graph, you can clearly see that the popularity of Java is decreasing over time. And on the other hand, the JavaScript graph is increasing over time. I am sure that soon JavaScript will pass over Java. Both languages are great. Java is best for android development and JavaScript is best for web development. Personally, I use Java for my android projects and JavaScript for web projects.
